I House by Saunders Architecture at 38 Carraig Ridge is oriented towards the west views along a bench on the site. The 2.95 acre lot ranges in elevation from 1,337 to 1,316 metres, falling to the west. The I House is situated among mature spruce trees framing views of Devil’s Head Mountain in the distance with a pond nearby, just beyond the walking trial at the west edge of the lot. The living spaces and second bedroom face west, while the master bedroom faces south. The I House uses the slope of the site to allow a south-facing third bedroom in the lower level, while maintaining a low profile from the drive. Sited on 650 acres of stunning landscape made up of rolling hills, forests, meadows, and ponds and framed by the mountains; while ideally positioned midway between Banff and Calgary. Over 500 acres of this beautiful wilderness is preserved for the owners while CR becomes a new centre for innovative contemporary architecture. Carraig Ridge is an escape from the demands of daily life in the city. Each of the 44 homes is meant to be a rural Retreat, focused on engaging views, both near and far, to bring the surrounding landscape into the house. Every lot within the community features stunning panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains. Carraig Ridge is a constant place. It exists to improve the rural character and natural integrity of its surroundings. The primary amenity offered by the community is immediate access to unspoiled, peaceful landscape. Thoughtful planning and community design ensures that every Retreat will enjoy privacy and solitude, without losing a sense of community. While each retreat is secluded and discreet, Carraig Ridge also provides plenty of gathering spots and recreational areas for residents to enjoy the company of their neighbours.
